7th Annual St. Jude Charity Auction to be held this Saturday.


The annual St. Jude Charity Auction is upon us again, and as in years past, hundreds of great items are already lined up on the block in preparation for the event. It will be held Saturday, January 14, at 10:00 AM in the Sally Wells Building at the Macon County Fairgrounds. Hosted by Ben Bray’s Real Estate & Auction Company, the sale raises money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN. St. Jude is a recognized leader in pediatric cancer research and treats over 5,000 underage patients a year, regardless of their ability to pay. Because of this, St. Jude relies heavily on donated funds. All proceeds from this auction will go directly to St. Jude.

The event will be held in a climate controlled space, rain or shine, with concessions and restrooms onsite. There will be tons of great items for sale.

For more information, or to donate items or money, call (615) 666-2232.

Ben Bray commented, “The items we have so far are: riding lawn mower, golf cart, 4 door Oldsmobile car, bedroom suite, living room furniture, kitchen furniture, knives, gift certificates from local businesses, toys and other household goods and items. This is just a small sampling of the items we have thus far.”
